    My dogs are my children and losing two of them in two weeks is just awful!!! My heart is shattered into tiny pieces! Rest in peace my sweet Murphy! She had cancer and it started to spread all over. I don't think I have ever been this stressed out in my whole life and for me Stress=Lupus flare.

    Hope things get better.
